Colombia's attorney general's office will charge former army commander General Mario Montoya for responsibility of 104 extrajudicial executions, as part of the "false positives" scandal, it said on Sunday. The false positives took place between 2002 and 2008, during the term of ex-President Alvaro Uribe, when soldiers murdered civilians and registered them as guerrilla fighters killed in combat to receive benefits. The country's transitional justice court (JEP) says at least 6,402 people were killed this way, but some victims' groups allege the numbers could be higher.

Jacobs won the men's 100 metres final to become the first Italian to take the most coveted title in athletics, while Tamberi shared the men's high jump gold. Until the Tokyo Olympics few Italians had even heard of Jacobs, who has made impressive progress over recent years and broke the European record twice on Sunday en route to victory.

The quartet of Ed Clancy, Owain Doull, Steven Burke and Bradley Wiggins clocked 3:50.265 to narrowly beat Australia and give Britain a third successive Olympic gold. Their winning time was only 1.4 seconds faster than their previous world record set at London 2012, which makes what has happened since all the more remarkable.
